Carcass composition and protein utilization of embden geese fed varying levels of dietary protein supplemented with lysine and methionine


Carcass composition and protein utilization of embden geese fed varying levels of dietary protein supplemented with lysine and methionine

Three hundred and twenty sexed Embden geese were reared in litter floor pens to study the influence of dietary protein level and amino acid supplementation on weight gain and carcass composition. There was no difference in weight gain, to 9 wk of age, in response to dietary protein levels varying from 16 to 22%, or with methionine and lysine supplementation of these diets. Diet also had no effect (P > 0.05) on yield of various carcass parts or the chemical composition of these parts. Compared to the chicken broiler of a comparable age, a much greater proportion of the weight gain of the goose can be attributed to fat deposition. The ability of the goose to consume large quantities of feed may make it an interesting model in using forage material for the production of edible carcass protein.
